“Understanding the Signs”

Good People,

This Sunday we will begin a new year in the Christian calendar with the first week of Advent.   Our lectionary reading from the Gospel of Mark is one that appears in our three-year lectionary calendar cycle.  The message is difficult to apply to initiate preparations for Jesus’ birth (his first coming), because it focuses on the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, also known as the Day of Our Lord, or the End Times.  How can we reconcile the difference between Jesus’ first and second coming?  Tune in this Sunday and I’ll do my best to help you in “Reading the Signs.”  See you Sunday!  Until then, be well and be sure to shine Christ’s light whenever you can.

Pastor Michael
